HOH WOK CLUB: Year of Monkey at BAZI

This year’s HOH WOK CLUB’s annual gathering to celebrate Chinese New Year was a huge success with food and cocktails overflowing. Thanks to BAZI and all who came, it was like a big private party except Chef Mike Pirolo and his team did all the work, so I could hang and enjoy!   So happy my sister, Valerie and her husband, Dennis were able to join us, at least I had one family member with me.

Feast your eyes on this food gallery, I already posted everything you need to know about BAZI in a post here.  Don’t miss Chef Mike Pirolo’s video below describing his BAZI concept! Also go check one of my fav Wok Stars, blogger and super photographer, Brenda Benoit’s post here.

If you missed this outstanding fun celebration, stay tuned for upcoming HOH WOK CLUB gatherings!  Numerous Asian inspired restaurants have popped up in Miami and I’d like to introduce you to them.  Sign up for my free newsletter in right sidebar so you’ll get first dibs into these events.


Full house at my HOH WOK CLUB’s Chinese New Year celebration at BAZI!


Chef Mike Pirolo and yours truly!


Appetizer: Braised mustard green salad with creamy ginger dressing and crispy shallots topped with duck and cranberries.


HOH WOK CLUB: special 3 course menu created by Chef Mike Pirolo.


2nd course: Chicken with fermented black beans and chives with sweet potato filled dumpling, everyone’s fav!


My Asian chick buddies, Sze Liu (my online marketing/web goddess) and yoga wear Space Cat founder, Yumi Miyanishi.


Special Chinese New Year cocktail created for our event!


Main course: Communal sharing was quite a challenge with the longevity noodles, snow peas, chicken and red peppers and snapper with braised cabbage! Great way to get folks interacting, ha, ha!


Dessert: top is chocolate bowl with passion fruit and Thai basil anglaise and pan dan rice pudding with fried banana, candied cashew and lemon grass caramel, ooh la, la!


Happy to share Wok Star Jocelyn’s birthday!


Thanks to Jacqueline Pirolo (Mike’s sister) for her tireless patience and making this event go smoothly! Ask for her if you want to put on an event at BAZI, she’s the deal!
